Taking Stock: One!

I have been reading a lot of these taking stock posts on some of the blogs I follow and decided to do one as well. I am not sure how often I will be doing them or if I will even do more at all but here goes for the first one….Research tells me that this lovelyblogger started the “Taking Stock” posts way back in 2013 and quite a number of bloggers have joined in since then.

Making: room for some awesomeness coming my way
Cooking: a lot with wheat berries (whole wheat grains) these days
Drinking: lemon water
Reading: Maya Angelou’s “The Heart of a Woman”…second time round almost a decade later
Wanting: more than I could possibly afford right now
Looking: at my computer screen and TV at the same time
Playing: nothing
Wasting: plenty of time right now…not good at all and very unlike me
Sewing: nothing but I was gonna hem a trouser that does count…no?
Wishing: I could take the pain away for a dear dear sister friend going through a really tough time
Enjoying: my own company
Waiting: for someone to reply to my text message
Liking: how my hair smells; I just washed it:)
Wondering: if I should have a smoothie or not
Loving: these Plimsolls/Plimsoles I recently bought
Hoping: to travel more next year
Marvelling: at how fast the year has gone gheez slow down already!
Needing: a new phone, a tablet and a vacation not necessarily in that order
Smelling: my hair
Wearing: sweatpants and a tee
Following: the comments on this controversial post on my Facebook newsfeed
Noticing: how beautiful Hawaii is (I am watching TV:) I need to visit
Knowing: that joy comes in the morning
Thinking: of my dear dear sister friend going through a really tough time right now
Feeling: like making a smoothie but I am too lazy to get off this couch plus I don’t feel like washing out the blender this night. Done touching water for the day
Bookmarking: my paypal page; don’t ask
Opening: my browser
Giggling:  right on track with these TV people
Feeling: warm and cosyJ

I really had fun doing my very first taking stock post!  Initially I was not going to do the entire list but only pick what spoke to me; customize to suit my current mood but I found myself typing away without a break:) I would definitely do one again.


  1. This is cool. Is it sort of a way of reflecting what is going on at the moment. I will have to give it a try. How often do you do this? And what did you use in your hair that smells so good? LOL ;)

    1. Wait you already addressed that you didn't know how often you would do this. Ha ha! Sheesh where is my brain? LOL

    2. Lol Andrea! Don't worry your brain is allowed to take a vacation every now and then hahaha. The conditioner is a new one i discovered a few months ago I have a wash day post coming up next so look out for it:) I look forward to reading your "Taking Stock" post should you decide to do one and yes it is sort of a reflection.

  2. I liked this post, very different but makes you think deep.

  3. I enjoyed reading this post. Drinking lemon water is on my to-do list.

    1. Thanks Nerline! Lemon water is amazing has done wonders for my skin


Thank you for reading...feel free to add a comment, suggestion or question. I am always happy to hear from you! Lydz.
